Transforming society through talent in leadership

We provide interim management and executive search to public and not-for-profit organisations. Tile Hill’s team is made up of dedicated market specialists and award-winning consultants, all with a clear focus – to propel your organisation towards its goals. We love what we do, and we approach our work with an energy, positivity and passion to succeed that enables us to achieve outstanding results.


We provide interim managers and specialist consultants for projects, programmes, and change initiatives across the public and not-for-profit sectors.

We work with outstanding people. Our community of interim managers offers a huge range of skills and experience, and we know we can rely on each individual to demonstrate objectivity, tenacity, and an unwavering commitment to delivering lasting benefits. With organisations throughout the public sector looking beyond traditional workforce strategies, interim professionals are playing an ever-greater role. Sometimes this is to plug short-term skills gaps, but more often, the need is to lead change, deliver transformation, or drive improvement. Interims offer fast, agile, flexible talent solutions along with the assurance that comes from having delivered at a senior level before. When working with Tile Hill, you’ll be working with an award-winning team of consultants and a business that is regarded by the interim managers we work with as being among the very best in the industry. We’re proud to be an Institute of Interim Management ‘Platinum Provider’, ranked 3rd in their annual survey, and our network of public sector interim managers is growing each day.

Executive Search

We identify exceptional public sector and not-for-profit leaders through an accessible and inclusive process that provides an outstanding candidate experience.

We believe that each and every recruitment campaign should be about telling your story, refreshing perceptions, and identifying and inspiring exceptional talent from all backgrounds to apply. In our view, there are three good ways to do this: Firstly, through targeted search, we mobilise quickly to reach a diverse audience, identifying and connecting with individuals that best fit the brief. Secondly, through a thought-provoking and creative approach to advertising that reinforces key messages and motivates people to find out more. And thirdly, through a seamless candidate experience that runs from start to finish and is based upon personal communication together with compelling and clear information presented to candidates in the right way at the right time. Our processes are designed in partnership with you, and when working with Tile Hill, you can expect honest advice from experienced people as well as high levels of support. Whilst the end goal is securing exceptional talent, we believe everyone involved should find the process a positive, enriching experience.


We enhance organisational culture through intelligent assessment methods, using data to gain insight, eliminate bias, and improve recruitment outcomes.

We believe psychometric assessment is a vital part of any selection process and provides a holistic picture of a candidate’s drivers, motivators, and derailers, all of which should be taken into account as part of the selection process. Psychometric assessment offers the ability to enhance organisational culture through intelligent assessment methods, using data to gain insights, eliminate bias, and improve recruitment outcomes. We offer assessment both as part of recruitment campaigns and as a standalone service and we provide access to a wide range of globally recognised products. Whether as part of a team assessment, restructuring exercise, or psychometric profiling during a recruitment process, our approach to assessment ensures participants are treated as individuals, are well informed, and feel supported to perform at their best in a process that is fair, transparent, and robust. You can expect us to work with you to build the most effective assessment design, advise you on appropriate tools, provide you with rich data to inform decision-making, and ensure all candidates gain from the experience.

What to expect

The organisations we work with have complex talent needs and a broad social responsibility. We understand the gravity of the decisions the leaders we work with can face and the essential work that they do. That’s just one of the reasons why Tile Hill sets the bar so high in how we plan, prepare for and deliver each campaign. We’re not simply here to line up CVs with job descriptions – our process puts people first and prioritises accessibility and inclusion, to deliver better recruitment experiences and improve representation in leadership.


Inclusive recruitment

As recruiters, it’s our responsibility to ensure our process is welcoming and accessible to the entire talent market. That means we’re acutely aware of social and professional challenges surrounding gender identity, race, disability, neurodiversity, sexual orientation, age, and the many other factors that make society so diverse. We actively work to improve diversity, equality, and inclusion at the top of our client organisations so they can achieve greater representation of the people they serve.

The service that Tile Hill offers to candidates is fantastic, like no other agency out there – they by far stand out as the best. Having applied for a couple of roles with Tile Hill, I’ve always found everyone to be incredibly friendly and supportive. The staff all put me at ease, they were forthcoming with information, and always kept me fully updated. Senior recruitment processes can sometimes be quite difficult, but I don’t feel like any of Tile Hill’s recruitment processes have been stressful – in fact, I’ve quite enjoyed them! Tile Hill is consistent in their service across the company, and it’s clear that all members of the team are passionate about their work.

Clare Lawrence
Executive Director of Place, West Berkshire Council

Tile Hill have a ‘human touch’ about them as a team that is felt in their interactions. The team give 100% attention to partnership working to make it a joint effort. The team members laugh, joke and at the same time are serious in delivering results. That creates an atmosphere of trust and confidence which l have had the pleasure to experience. It’s not every day that you come across a caring and supportive recruitment team like Tile Hill's - talking from experience, their human element is a major attraction and the winning ingredient.

Priscilla Kurewa
Senior Manager, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham

Tile Hill have provided great support to recruit to both interim and permanent Leadership roles. These were successful campaigns for a role that has been previously hard to recruit to. I’ve been impressed with their professionalism, responsiveness and strong understanding of the sector and their clear analysis of candidates strengths and areas for development.

Tim Aldridge
Corporate Director of Children & Young People's Services (DCS), London Borough of Newham

I've worked as an interim with Tile Hill before they helped me to secure my current role, so for me it is a business that actually considers candidates and interims as part of their team - working with them to develop, and respecting them’

Mark Emms

Chris Barrow was helpful, empathic, available and reassuring. I enjoyed his honesty and support and would work with him again, any day of the week.

Maria Young

I feel that Nik is committed to me and my career as an interim. I have felt like a valuable asset to Tile Hill rather than just viewed as making money for them. I feel that Nik is selective in the roles he puts me forward for. There have been some unpredictable aspects (beyond Nik’s control) but communication has been excellent. I feel well supported.

Jo Lyons

Helen and Greg were very supportive and honest about the client, the process and the feedback. Helen offered to provide assistance and interview practice for future roles, which is very useful, especially for candidates that do not change roles on a regular basis.

Fiona Williamson

A friendly, approachable team that put myself as a candidate at ease. A very supportive approach. Well briefed about the role. The choice of technical support was very solid but displayed the same supportive and friendly approach.

Claire Lawrence

Whoever I talked to at Tile Hill were up to date so clearly had been communicating between each other. They all had a really good grasp of the organisation and role, as well as providing great support through the process. They took time to keep in touch and check on me and it felt very genuine.

Claire Flowers

The team keeps in touch with me to ensure I am enjoying the placement. You don’t always get this with other agencies as they only want to place you into a contract and then tend to not call you. Tile Hill is amazing and I hope to stay working with them for a long time.
